Managing Existing Accounts
Accounts in Centova Cast may be managed via the account management page, which is displayed immediately
after logging in, and may accessed at any time by clicking the
Manage link under the Accounts
The account list provides an overview of all accounts managed by this Centova Cast control panel.
The summary includes the following details:
Indicates the username for the account. Click on the username to view or modify the account details.
Indicates the title for the stream. This will be displayed by listeners' media players when they tune into the stream.
Indicates the name of the server on which the account is hosted.
Indicates the port number on which this client's streaming server listens. Click on the port number to access the streaming server's built-in administrative interface.
Indicates the type of server software (ShoutCast2, IceCast, etc.) used by the stream.
Indicates the maximum number of concurrent listeners permitted for this stream. The stream can never have more than this number of listeners tuned-in at the same time.
Indicates the maximum bit rate for this stream.
Indicates the current and maximum monthly data transfer for this stream. Centova Cast automatically keeps track of the amount of data transfer used by each stream each month, and will perform the actions defined in the server settings if a stream exceeds this limit. Note that the current data transfer usage for each account is not updated in realtime.
Indicates the current and maximum disk space utilization for this stream. Centova Cast automatically keeps track of the amount of disk space used by each stream, and will perform the actions defined in the server settings if a stream exceeds this limit. Note that the current disk space usage for each account is not updated in realtime.
Next to each account, Centova Cast also displays the following icons:
Represented by a yellow lightning bolt, this icon can be used to login to the account.
